Antique Borden Family Linsey Woolsey Quilt.  This quilt comes from New Jersey and was made in the 1770-1820 period.  It is a great find and we've been trying to acquire this masterwork for several years.  The condition is very good for its age.  There are some dark stains and a teeny bit of wear (to be expected in a quilt of this antiquity). It measures 80x70 with 7 s.p.i.  Early rough homespun linsey and woolsey.  Rich coffee colored brown reverse!! Lovely vine quilting with wreath within.  So beautiful-words cannot describe the presence of this warm blood orange red quilt.  The cloth was woven in 2 narrow sections and sewn together in the middle. A true museum piece.  From the Borden Family that Bordentown, New Jersey was named.  This is one of the most beauiful and rare quilts we have ever seen.

The color is so deep that it is difficult to be able to see in a photograph.

All good offers accepted.  Friendly layaway plan.  Whoever gets this will love it.
